Publisher's Summary

The 16th book in the New York Times best-selling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls "an extraordinary series...[containing] one of the most intriguing heroines in the genre".
If you don't know Gin "the Spider" Blanco, you don't know dangerous female heroines.
Irony 101 - the Spider herself snared in someone else's web...
Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city's underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl.
My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I'm not holding out much hope that she's still alive.
A series of clues leads me down an increasingly dark, dangerous path, and I realize that the missing girl is really just the first thread in this web of evil. As an assassin, I'm used to facing down the worst of the worst, but nothing prepares me for this new, terrifying enemy - one who strikes from the shadows and is determined to make me the next victim.

Gin is off her game this time but still fun

As always, Gin's never ending battle against evil in Ashland completely dominated everything.

Usually I can overlook some of her mistakes as just the luck of the draw, but the initial scene at the den window played like slapstick instead of a skilled assassin lurking for information. And when she later stepped on a creaking board in a hall she had been down before while trying to catch an intruder, all I could do was roll my eyes. At this point it was obvious that the author was manipulating the action to fit her needs. Now, I realize that this is something all authors must do, but Estes is generally more skilled and less obvious at the ploy.

I also figured out a number of the mysteries fairly early in the story and kept waiting for Him to catch up and poverty me right. For once, I was exactly right. The clues were a bit too obvious this time.

Still, I enjoyed the story and it did a good job of advancing the overarching plot line as well as bringing Gin some new and valuable allies. I will continue to purchase and read this series. And if the author continues to drop references to her Bigtime series, I may even break down and read one of those.

This series continues to amaze me

There aren’t many series that can be sixteen books in and still be interesting and exciting. I tend to get bored with series easily lately, but Jennifer Estep has kept me on intrigued with this series from book one and it has never faltered.

In this book, Gin has one of the underworld bosses, Jade Jamison, calling in a favor when Jade’s sister comes up missing. Gin and the gang quickly uncover that there’s a serial killer in Ashland. There’s always been a lot of killings, but those were more like gang killings, this is the first serial killer that we’ve seen. I will say it was a nice touch.

Gin also hasn’t forgotten about the Circle. She is determined to find all the members. She learns that mother had a larger roll in the Circle than originally thought. She remembers a lot through dreams, which has become a theme throughout the series. Every book, Gin dreams and remembers the exact thing she needs from her past. While this is a bit repetitive, I like learning more about young Gin.

This is a really fun series that I have loved since book one. I love how Gin is a very strong female character. I love seeing how she’s grown over the series. I love her group of friends. She was an orphan (after her family is brutally murdered in front of her) to creating a family of her own making. She may be a criminal underworld leader, but she also has morals and wants to take care of her own and people who need her help (if only real underworld bosses were more like her). If you haven’t tried this series, it is one of my favorite, going strong at #16.

Narration
What to say about Lauren Fortgang’s narration that I haven’t already said. She does an amazing job. I love all of her voices, both male and female. I love how she sets the scene’s pace and tone. Fortgang is a favorite narrator of mine. I’ve listened to a few things with her and I’ve always enjoyed her narration.

**I like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Having disliked the previous book

Thought the previous book was terrible , too repetitive. Thought to give the series one more chance and glad I did. This was more original by bringing a serial killer (not a spoiler as revealed quickly and the crux of the story) but keeping with the previous stories.

Good twists and hope that 15 was just a blip.

Brilliant as always

Love love love Gin... plot was a little predictable this time however characters are so engaging that I will forgive this small oversight. Looking forward to the next book.
